  • the butterfly weed (asclepias tuberosa) is on the verge of blooming, but a small herd of monarch caterpillars is grazing on the foliage and will almost certainly get to the flower buds before they open
  • the summer snowflakes (leucojum aestivum) have experienced a recent growth spurt, but still no sign of flowers
  • the coral honeysuckle (lonicera sempervirens) has new growth at almost every node
  • to my great surprise, three chinese trumpet 'regale' lilies are sprouting under the tea olive
  • narcissus "petrel" are sprouting in various places, most are about eight inches tall
  • the "wisley blues" have a vase-life of about 48 hours
